* CerebusRetcon: Two cases. First at the state dinner, Mia's clumsiness causes a fiasco that's PlayedForLaughs - and luckily for her everyone at the dinner finds it charmingly hilarious. But it then cuts to Mia in her room, sadly saying "I'm sorry I let you down" to a picture of her father.

* [[RunawayBride RunawayCouple]]: Played straight in the climax where [[spoiler: Mia decides not to marry Andrew for the sake of Genovia, much to his relief since he didn't want to marry her either]].

*** In the second film you see the same officials wonder if there will be string cheese at Mia's birthday.

* EveryoneCanSeeIt: Joe and Clarisse - when they announce they're going to get married even the bishop mouths "finally". Given the first film has the Prime Minister's handing Clarisse over to dance with Joe, it doesn't seem they tried hard to hide their feelings.

* GenerationXerox: Many of the problems Mia faces when starting out as a princess are similar to what her grandmother had to deal with (as Clarisse had married into royalty). Even Mia's marriage to Andrew [[spoiler:(had it gone through)]] -- Clarisse was deeply fond of her first husband, calling him her best friend, but judging by how people act around Joe when not in the presence of royalty, it was absolutely no secret that the man she was actually in love with was him. Similarly, it's clear Andrew and Mia care for each other, but not in the romantic sense.



* {{Homage}}: In the second movie, Mia dances with a succession of royal suitors with humorous personalities and/or odd dance styles, much as Creator/AudreyHepburn (also playing a somewhat unorthodox princess) does in ''Film/RomanHoliday''.

* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: When Nicolas attempts to woo Mia, he pulls her close to him and kisses her at least one.

to:

* {{Nepotism}}: A throwaway gag line in the sequel reveals that the reason why Mia's suite wasn't ready upon her arrival is because they asked her grandfather's cousin to do the bathroom. As Clarisse puts it, nepotism belongs in the arts -- not plumbing.

Added DiffLines:

* ParentalMarriageVeto: The whole conflict of the second movie could've been avoided if they had betrothed Nicholas to Mia -- especially since it was becoming increasingly clear to anyone watching them interact that they wouldn't be opposed to the idea ''at all''. Nicholas even brings up the possibility to his uncle, who immediately shoots it down as he does not want anyone to threaten his attempts to make Nicholas a PuppetKing.

** A subtle one, also somewhat related to the beach party debacle. Right before Mia mentions the FootPopping, her mother calls Josh a "[[BackstreetBoys Backstreet Boy]] clone". Later, when Mia shows up at school the day after the scandal, "What Makes You Different" by the Backstreet Boys is playing in the background.
